Preferred Builder status is achieved when trade contractors and suppliers prefer to work for one particular builder over another. Preferred Builders are often rewarded with the best pricing and service from the companies that work for them. Obtaining preferred status can only be achieved by businesses that are sincerely concerned about the well-being of everybody they work with.
The approach to becoming a preferred builder is actually rather simple. Treat others the way you want to be treated yourself.
These techniques work with any type of business relationship but to be effective must be sincere and part of a company culture.
